sides agree on anything? i'll talk to obama's campaign co-chair. >> we want stuff done. we want solutions. we don't need perfection. we need progress. >> we'll talk about his legacy. >> i think he can learn from the past and he's try to do that. >> and what obama needs to do for america. >> he's swinging big. swinging for the fences. >> second-term presidencies have been filled with misspent political capital. >> this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. america has great expectations for president obama and at the same time the country is divided on issues important to everyone. what will his agenda look like in the next four years? tonight we're going to find out with top advisers and experts. let's get started. joining me now is massachusetts's governor, president obama's campaign co-chairman. welcome. how are you governor? >> good evening, piers. i'm well. how are you? >> i'm very well. this is the first i've covered since being to cnn and there's a palpable, i think, anticipation in the air about what kind of barack obama we're going to see now that perhaps the shac
the kind of fear president obama talked about today. trying to make people think, oh, my god, they're coming for my gun. and what happens is a lot of americans buy more of the guns and more ammunition, so it spirals on. why can't you see the plane analogy that you brought up as the perfect example of what you should be doing, which is dealing with the chicken and not all the eggs? the chicken is the gun. the gun situation in america, to many people, seems increasingly ridiculous, where a young, deranged man could very easily access an ar-15 assault weapon and take a magazine with 100 bullets and commit mass murder. the last four shootings in america have involved that specific weapon. and have led to complete carnage. it's that that people want to remove. it's not regular guns, handguns, or pistols. what is your answer for that. >> first of all, guns are prohibited in the airplane. they're also prohibited in the school. what we've got to make sure is somebody who violates the law, that children are still protected. that's why we have federal air marshals on airplanes and that's why
obama's fashions, we're going to be talking about her bangs. the first lady got bangs. >> yes, she did. >> i want to ask you what you think of it. is it a good look for her? and do you think that now everyone, maybe not everyone, but certainly a lot more women will be going out and getting -- is she going to be starting a new bangs trend, perhaps? >> i'm going to give maney eisenhower a little credit, because she did have quite famous bangs. but i think the bangs look create. i don't read anything more into them other than it's been four years, she's going into a new chapter in her public life, so why not have a new hairdo? >> sure. why not, right? she can pull it off. many believe, though, that michelle obama has this style, and a real accessibility. you know, she can wear anything from target to talbots to jason wu. but you once wrote, again, here, "avoiding the appearance of queenly behavior is politically wise, but it does american culture no favors if the first lady tries so hard to be average that she winds up looking common." i think you were writing about when the first lady wa
on a hollywood feel. the anticipation is growing over what michelle obama will wear. up next we'll talk to an author who has written a book about mrs. obama's unique style. >>> the first lady, michelle obama is known for many, many things, very calm demeanor, her dedication to health and fitness, her fantastic and enviable arpgs and her style. >> and as she celebrated her 49th birthday this past week, she was shorting a new hair style. it is all about the bangs. the nation simply abuzz after this photo was posted on twitter. she also turned some heads in a stylish tracy reece dress. at the democratic national convention, i don't know what that means, but i can't wait to find out. what will she wear on inauguration day. >> and tracy reece is just a very, very fabulous designer. we want to talk a little bit more about michelle obama's book, with kate betts, she is in new york. we're sorry you're missing out on the festivities here. usually i know we get a minute about what the first lady is going to wear on inauguration day. but this time around, no one knows, right? >> she keeps us waiti

. >>> president obama as we've been talking about will start his second term on monday. and we will take a look at what to expect, what you can expect in the next four years. ...so ass customer satisfaction is at 97%. mmmm tasty. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? >>> welcome back, everyone, to "cnn saturday morning." here in washington, crowds are already gathering for what is going to be an action-packed inauguration weekend. the president's public swearing-in and inaugural speech take place monday. the festivities certainly well underway here on the mall. you see the crowds are gathering there. suzanne malveaux is covering some of the events. sthooes nation she's at the national day of service. what's going on there? >> reporter: randi, you kn
of history of the presidency of barack obama. everyone talks about how in the second term, presidents run for history. this is that first kind of draft, isn't it? >> some ways that's a dangerous concept. think about it, all of a sudden you're playing to the academic jury, that's the ultimate electorate, the people who will decide if you're a near great president or average president, you know, whether you're a teddy roosevelt or a chester arthur, and you probably shouldn't be playing to them more than any other particular interest group. i'm part of the jury. see, you only get to vote for president once are we get to vote over and over again. but presidents really, it seems to me, that's just one more interest group they should avoid tailoring their actions. >> we talk about second it terms a lot. how presidents can avoid the pitfalls that's plagued so many during the second term. >> i don't think there's a second term curse. a number of factors including the media, the 24/7 news cycle, the saturation coverage, everything that a president does or says or that his family does or says. >> i
. president obama spent the better part of the hour talking about the debt ceiling. so we'll go into the details about what it is, exactly. it is a cap on the amount of money the federal government may borrow. the cap is actually set by congress. so it includes money the federal government borrows from the public. for example, u.s. bonds, right? also includes debt that the treasury owes the government, trust funds like social security and medicare. right now, the ceiling, is it set at almost $16.4 trillion. the country's borrowing already hit that mark. that happened on december 31st. so the ceiling is raised periodically because both parties, they have to have approved the tax cuts and the spending increases over the years, knowing that they're going to add to the deficits. by doing so, they increase the country's need to borrow in the future. since 1962, congress has raised the debt limit 76 times, 11 times in the past decade. i want to talk about the debate over the debt ceiling, how it affects the overall economy. our georgia tech economics professor, danny boston joining us
's talk more about that, because if we asked people what kind of president will president obama be in his second term? and this is what they said irk 20% said obama will be outstanding, 34% said above average. 12% said below average and 29% said poor. so what can the president do to boost those approval? >> that is still 54% of the american people. he won with 53% of the vote. many republicans wanted him to be a one-term president but now that he has a second term, i think it's time to put aside just the -- that we see in politics today and focus on the big issues. the president reaching out. he will continue to reach out. but the republicans also will have to meet him halfway. a reason why we have the big stretch of the mall, the capitol and the white house them should come together. you know what, no time to do it than right now the beginning of the second term with the president. >> alex? >> he's tough hand, don. the three things that produce really failures of second terms, wars, bad economies and corruption. and in washington, core run suggesti -- corruption is a dangerous thing, you
are here in the big city of washington, d.c. for president obama's second inauguration. and so let's talk more about cities. >> that's right. because president obama got a lot of support from big city voters in his bid for a second term. and whether it's crime or jobs or health care, people who live in urban areas are now looking to the president to help them solve some of their problems. >> that's absolutely right. and atlanta mayor reid supported president obama, nice enough to be here with us to talk about these issues. we were saying in the break, we talked so much about the federal government. it's the cities where the rubber meets the road and so nice to have this conversation with you. what do you think, if you want to speak for your city or cities acountries the country, what is the biggest issue facing cities, facing mayors as we head into the president's second term? >> i think cities is where hope meets the street. and our biggest issues are infrastructure related. 70% of our country's gdp occurs in cities. if you want a healthy country, you want cities up and moving. and we ha
was a fashionista and you're talking about dolly madison. how do you compare michelle obama to her most recent predecessors, laura bush, and secretary of state hillary clinton? >> i think that every first lady has to define the role for herself. so there are things that are available to her. she has access, she has chances to exert power. the office of first lady has a power just in showing up. and i think each of our first ladies that in our living memory have exercised that power very well. i know that mrs. laura bush was an incredibly powerful and effective first lady. but she did it rather quietly and a more mibehind the scenes kind of way. in fact, i would say her career after first lady hood is an example for all first ladies. and, of course, mrs. clinton was a stepping stone to even more power. so i think each woman defines it for herself. and i think mrs. obama has been a good example of that. i'm curious to see what she is going to do in four years. >> we all are. thank you, kathryn. we appreciate it. and you can't talk presidential inauguration without some historical context. so nex
day of service . let's talk more about the inauguration and the second term for president obama. for that i want to bring in my colleague, white house correspondent dan lothian. dan, let's talk about priorities for the president's second term but first it's an interesting little nugget of history. this is a historic day and also a historic inauguration for president obama because he's going to match only fdr in getting two double swear-ins or four swearing-ins if you will. why is that? >> first of all, look back to 2009 when justice roberts and the president kind of stepped on each other, the word "faithfully" out of order, there was a question whether or not it was legitimate so, they had a second one in the private quarters of the white house. this time around the constitution says you have to administer the oath before noon on the 20th. on sunday is not typically when we have the inauguration, so they'll have a private ceremony in the blue room on sunday and then on monday they'll have the official sort of public swearing-in for the president. >> and the parade and pomp and c
're moving off minoring in hip-hop and we'll talk economics here. president obama, maybe we'll talk hip-hop as well, in a final formal news conference before he takes the oath of office here in his second term spoke this morning, pushing for support on raising the debt ceiling. >> and republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills, or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people is not leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states of america is not a bargaining chip. and they better choose quickly because time is running short. >> so the president says there will be no ransom, you heard him say no bargaining chip in this whole debt ceiling debate. the deadline to raise that ceiling is approaching quickly. some members in congress say they're willing to shut down the government to avoid raising that limit now. joining me now is ben stein. nice to have you
people fill ed the national ball four years together hear barack obama's first speech. and then, he was talking to a country full of hope that he could get america back on track this year, americans are divided how thing russ going in a country. a new cnn research poll lays it out. 49% of things believe things are going well in this country. 49% believe things are going well. 51% believe things are poor. no president faced the public this bitter at the start of a second term. president bush -- presidents bush, clinton, reagan, all had higher numbers when it came to americans' confidence and how things are going in this country. so joining me now john avlon, he's senior political columnist at "newsweek" and the daily beast and his much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much better half, cnn political contributor, margaret hoover, who is my secret girlfriend. >> i thought cyndi lauper was your secret girlfriend. >> you are my secret girlfriend since i hosted "in the arena" one night, we fell in love. >> a beautiful thing. i'm not going to touch it. >> you're comfortable. >> don't t

. and david cameron has been talking to president obama about probably sharing their confusion about the situation on the ground, and that very remote part of algeria. leon pan etta has come out, saying he and the rest of the defense department is working around the clock to bring the situation to a happy ending. >> and matthew, another question, and i apologize if you already addressed it, but i'm trying to read the latest details coming out. do we know the number of americans? any clarity on that? >> no, we don't is the short answer to that. we know that there are 41 people according to militants held hostage, and a good number from britain, japan, and the united states as well. exact figures are very hard to come by at the moment. >> yeah, that's actually one of the more disturbing details, right? we don't have the actual information and the united states doesn't know. matthew chance live in london. one more thing here. i am uncertain whether or not there was clarity on that a small number of bp employees unaccounted for at that gas plant in algeria. the company releasing the stat
. ahead, we'll talk about president obama's potential executive order on gun control. we're talking to connecticut senator chris murphy about what the president actually can do as well as vice president biden's expected recommendation. that's coming up in just a few moments. first, though, we want to get an update on some of the other stories that are making news. john berman has that in new york. good morning, john. >> good morning, soledad. the nation wooild flu outbreak, it's just about everywhere. in all but three states, in fact, those lucky states, california, hawaii, and mississippi. in new york city the big hassle involves trying to get vaccinated. there's a run on the vaccine at some pharmacies and urgent care centers since governor andrew cuomo declared a public health emergency. debate resumes today in the house of representatives over two bills that address sandy relief aid. despite opposition from house conservatives, the bills are expected to pass providing an additional $50 billion to the hard hit northeast. lawmakers in the affected areas including new jersey governo
that as the omb. under presidents obama and clinton. he was a key player during the 2011 debt ceiling talks that almost shut down the government. he'll have his work cut out for him. democrats and republicans on capitol hill are gearing up for another battle over extending the debt ceiling while the global embarrassment that serves as the economic policy debate in washington these days, i've got a hunch that timothy geithner won't mistaking part in another one of those showdowns. but why should the rest of the world care if jack lew or anyone else is running the u.s. treasury? joining me now, he's taken off his jacket. he's got his suspenders, richard quest. a little q&a. i'll do the same thing. richard quest, host of "quest means business." on cnn international. does it matter who the u.s. treasury secretary is for the rest of the world? give me 60 seconds on your bell. generally i doubt most americans are all that concerned about the treasury secretary. but in 2008, who it was mattered a lot to the world. gooit timothy geithner was the right guy at the right time. because the global banki
for the middle class. i think when you look back ob president obama's presidency we'll talk about the historic economic challenges and how he began to overcome them. >> but at the end of the campaign day when you're in the private room with only the inner circle, at any time has the president said if i get four more years and now he has four more years, i need to do this differently or i need to take a different approach to this? >> i think one thing that you've already seen change a little bit is during some of the fiscal negotiations during the first term. those were brought behind closed doors. you had the president and the speaker in a room trying to hash things out, and that didn't work for our perspective. the speaker couldn't sell those plans to his conference after he's agreed to them so what the president will never do is fail to enlist the support of the american people in these legislative battles. you have seen that already with the new organizing for action organization out there. all the campaign supporters across the country are organizing on behalf of comprehensive immigration
were meeting in secret. >> president obama and secretary clinton were talking kind of alone, you know, in some hallway and he said let's go. and she said, let's go. >> so they kind of barged in. >> they kind of barged in. they said hey, guys, what are you doing? >> we're here. >> what's going on here. we're here and we got the deal done. >> secretary clinton has logged just shy of a million miles as secretary of state and usually on board, cnn foreign affairs reporter aleece labbit. >> this is the press cabin where the journalists or traveling press sit. as we move forward it's different. >> that's where all the action takes place. a lot of communications equipment. this right here is the line of death. >> what's the line of death? >> this is where all the classified material is and so they always say to journalists can't come in because they have this classified bag, but let's cross it. >> let's cross it. >> and this is where the secretary does all of her business. this is -- >> this is her cabin. >> this is the secretary's cabin. a desk right here. and this couch right here pulls in
, the personal relationships. people talked often enough that obama sometimes can be a and we will appreciate over the next two years in particular what a good retail politician this man is. i don't think anything gets done in this administration without joe biden either in front of it or behind the scenes making it work ask that will mean something to democrats. >> however, we should add he turned 70 this year, i believe. he tells you all the time how healthy he is. but in response to your question, he does want to run. it is very clear he wants to run. >> one thing that helps, too, is that it's going to hurt, i think, the other contenders and help biden is that nothing new grows under the shade of a big tree. when bush was president, we m missed a generation of young leaders. they're only coming right now. the rubios and all that. eight years of obama in that shadow, we're not going to see a lot of new faces get air time, get that kind of publicity. so, people who have brands like biden and hillary -- >> we have to cut you off. i have to make a plug here. tomorrow after inauguration i have
's all about. >> it's an obama hat. >> i'm going to talk to your brother. you know what the hat's all about, you've got a button as well. tell me what it was like last go-round. >> it was special, it was emotional. because most people can't come. so i'm very blessed to at least come to see the president. >> that is so nice. and you came all the way from california, is that right? >> yes, ma'am. >> and what do you hope the president learns, what do you want the president to know? >> everything that he can. >> everything that he can. everything that he wants to know about. about the family. >> no guns at school. >> all right we got a message from one of the kids, no guns at school. soledad, we'll give it back to you, a lot of folks want to weigh in here, it's just a gorgeous day and they're very excited about tomorrow. >> and it's nice to see all the big crowds that are growing steadily. all right suzanne malveaux, thanks. >>> barack obama's public swearing in ceremony tomorrow is going to coincide with another important event, the national observance of martin luther king jr.'s birthda
. so we'll roll that out, talk a little bit about what that means, and the connection between the obama family and king family. >> definitely looking forward to that. >> i love the bangs, don't you like them. >> wolf, we'll all have to rock the bangs, wolf, you start the trend. >> you know, i don't know if i can -- the two of you with the bangs. >> when you shave your beard, i'll get the bangs, okay. >> suzanne, you remember a few years ago we went to the awards, usher is coming up, you will like what he has to say. >> i like him. >> you like katy perry, far east movement? >> well, i like them all. >> get ready, the surprises. >> you see the one person that didn't get the invite to the soul train awards, this guy. >> we'll invite you. >> thanks. >> you can hang with us. >> the kids' inaugural concert coming up here on "the situation room." coming up, what will the president say in his inaugural speech on monday? can he do anything to ease the bitterness? stand by, you're in "the situation room." ♪ [ male announcer ] some day, your life will flash before your eyes. make it worth watchi
in washington will be over the debt ceiling. can president obama end this craziness and bypass congress altogether? we'll talk about the out of the box solutions and whether they would work. >>> and, finally, this is the signature of the man who might be the next treasury secretary. we'll look back through history to see if there's any loopy president. speaking of secretaries of the treasury three former holders of the office and many other statesmen and women offering advice to the president on a new gps special tonight "memo to the president, road map for a second term." tonight at 8:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. eastern and pacific. >>> first, here's my take. chuck hagel's nomination as america's next secretary of defense has drawn fire from people who say he's outside of the main stream. in fact, he's a pretty straight forward, traditional republican on most issues with a reluctance to go to war, born of knowledge and experience. where hagel does appear out of the mainstream in washington's world of group think is on iran. which i would argue is a good thing because washington desperately
is shucking and jiving. that's a racial era slave term. >> powell is most likely talking about former alaska governor sarah palin who blasted president obama for his handling of the benghazi consulate attack on facebook writing in part, "why the lies? why the cover up? why the dissembling about the cause of the murder of our ambassador? on the anniversary of the worst terror attacks on american soil. we deserve answers to this. president obama's shuck and jive shtick with these benghazi lies must end." joining me now cnn contributor and senior writer for cnn.com, gra l.z. granderson. and will cain. palin defended the remarks saying there was nothing racist about them. was there? >> i'm going to go with no, carol. you know this is always my favorite segment. why are republicans racist? are you racist? tell me again what is not racist about conservatism? it's always the burden of proof to prove you're not a racist, which is a near impossible thing to do. i understand you're not asking me about my personal views. you're asking about a party. i don't know, whatever that is, tens of millions of p
an amount of uncertainty, if you will. just today president obama was talking about what could happen if congress doesn't agree to let the government essentially pay its bills. let's listen. >> america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. if congressional republicans refused to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans benefits will be delayed. >> so the truth is the president and the congress actually have to agree on all of this to end up getting a deal. but the question for you, suze, is what are americans supposed to do during a time of uncertainty? for example, if you're thinking about making a big purchase, should you do it now or wait till the president and the congress figures it out? >> the time has come, in my opinion that americans realize that their future cannot be in the hands of politicians. that their financial future has to be held tightly right within their own grips. and if they don't have the money to buy something outright, if they have to put it on a credit
to talk about the -- you may well remember president obama trieded it, he had ted kennedy on his side, he had mccain on his side, it didn't go anywhere. what do you think if the president tries to push for comprehensive immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship for so many of the ten, 10 million illegal immigrations from -- >> they lost about 71% of the latino vote, 74% of the asian vote. the vast majority of people in the country in poll after poll after poll including your own say that people want comprehensive immigration reform that provides a pathway for citizenship. i saw john mccain yesterday on face the nation and i can tell you that we were in the room together, he's working with some eight senators, he believes that we're on the path to get comprehensive immigration reform and i think that both parties would be -- would do well by the american people if they did that and i think that's the difference. an election has a way of making a statement, and i think it did, particularly for the republicans who, as you know, were calling for the south deportation of 11 million
bunker. not too bad for a family of four. we're talking about some prime washington real estate at 1600 pennsylvania avenue, the white house. president obama and his family get a rent free deal to live there for the next four years. you could say every american taxpayer owns just a little piece of the white house. felicia taylor, i wanted to talk to you about this. i saw this article in zillow had calculated this morning, just having fun, the white house isn't for sale. in terms of dollars and cents, if someone wanted to buy the white house what do you think it would be worth? >> about a cool $295 million. not such a big price tag. >> please. >> you certainly make enough to afford that, i know. anyway, zillow used public data and recent sales to figure it out. it buys you 50,000 square feet, 132 rooms, and three kitchens because one isn't enough. you got a pool, a movie theater, a bowling alley, that was because of the nixens, they asked for that one, a jogging track, which bill clinton added. the value of the white house got up, though, since obama came into town, up about 7% since 200
that does it then ring hollow? how do you bring truth to those words? >> this is a new, feisty obama we are seeing since the elections, that's for sure, a question who he will be, as he moves into the second term slam. lot of talk about lincoln's second inaugural, which i think by standards is the gold standard and the greatest of the second inaugural addresses that we know. >> because? >> because it came at the pivotal moment of maximum peril for the nation and it was a real statement about how we could be larger as a democracy and reembrace those who had been against the country and come back together. but i have been looking at franklin ross vel's second inaugur inaugural, 1937, which is interesting, because it was a very can candid, honest progress report about what had not yet been accomplished coming out of the great depression but also a statement how we had to come together, useself government as the most noble expression. and use very precise terms, if you go back and look that the speech there is very real room for president obama now to say to the country, these are the thing
and how to do it in a creative way. >> you know, bill, i'm curious, people have talked a lot about president obama as a gifted speaker which, of course, he is. but then people say, well, that first inauguration speech was not his best moment. he tried to do a whole lot of different things. people say look, he tried to do so many different things that there wasn't that sort of one-lime memory that people get sometimes from inaugurals. will this one be different? more specific in more targeted? >> i think that people in this media environment really want to be able to pull a sound bite out and say this is the thing we are going to hang this whole speech on. this is what's going to define whether or not it's a great speech. and i think that the president, which we knew from the beginning of the last campaign, speaks in paragraphs, not in sound bites. you know, for better or for worse in some of the debates. i think this speech is going to be about talking directly with the american people about what is this moment and how can we actually still make progress even though the politics in
of michelle obama's style so i think they had some fun with it today, martin. >> i'm sure they did. let's talk about crowds, the first time of the inauguration was historic, it is still historic, i'm wondering, will the crowds be the same? >> we asked the chamber of commerce about that, what expectations r let's listen to what the president of the chamber of commerce told us. >> what we are hearing is 600,000 to 800,000 people coming into the city. you compare that to 2008/2009, 2008 election/2009 inauguration, it was almost 2 million. 1.8. those of us in the in business community would love to see 2 million people in our city, but no, we are not looking anywhere near those numbers. >> reporter: so you heard not as many people this time but still, hundreds of thousands of people expected to descend on the mall. you don't need tickets to descend on the mall. you do to have be in the seats behind us it will be a boone to businesses. one thing the chamber of commerce president told us there is hotel space you as long as you are willing to spend a good chunk of change, $600 a night. >> if you have

. you know, in policies, kind of according to what president obama wanted to do yesterday. >> let's talk about that. the president unveiled plans to curb gun violence yesterday. i want to listen to part of what he said. >> okay. >> congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. the type of assault rifle used in aurora, for example, when pared with a high-capacity magazine has one purpose. to pump out as many bullets as quickly as possible. >> it looks unlikely that the president will get ab assault ban by the senate. how do you feel about that? >> you know, just the fact that he is hearing our plea not only from aurora, but from newtown, from tucson, from all of these different places, you know, our pleas are being heard, and that is that we hope that, you know, other -- there are other people out there every day, getting killed, and we're trying to c b curb -- get some kind of policy in place so 34 people aren't affected every day due to gun violence. >> almost two weeks ago, you mentioned what would help you heal if cinemark would

number one. which is immigration. number two is obama care. number three, mystery scandal. so, let's talk about immigration, first. though i'm dying to get to that scandal. >> good morning. it's so great to see that view behind you. i used to have a view down the mall at my old job working for the senate majority leader and when i worked for bill frist and george bush was president, they tried to get immigration reform done. unfortunately that didn't happen. with a lot of democratic pushback, they didn't want to tackle that issue. i agree with maria that immigration is going to be very central on the president's agenda the next four years as well as the republican agenda, both because it's the right thing to do, it is a pressing issue and also because of the electoral pressure that both parties have to tackle this directly. number two, obamacare. we are only now seeing sort of the fallout and consequences of that legislation. there are lawsuits all around -- dozens of lawsuits, actually, against the administration on obamacare when it comes to religious liberty. we're seeing health care p
